Thick & Thin Film

PRODUCTS AND SERVICES

A mature in-house facility supplying thin film circuits to the Microwave industry since the 1980’s

MSI has beem the leading manufacturer of Precision Hi-Reliability Chip Resistors for more than 30 years. MSI's products are designed for superior solder fillets for optimum performance in the area of stability, solderability, adhesion, power dissipation, and life.

Cobham MAL Ltd. has retained a thin film processing capability at its Milton Keynes facility for over 25 years. This well developed and regularly used process has been exploited by Cobham in its microwave assemblies and has been qualified into a number of aerospace, defense, communications and space products.

Wire and ribbon bondable and Flipchip thick film chip attenuators are printed and fired on 96% alumina. They provide attenuation accuracy for frequencies through 10 Ghz. Double layer terminations provide additional bonding surface, while abrasive trimming ensures optimum resistor stability

The ITF LGA Coupler is based on thin-film multilayer technology. The technology provides a miniature part with excellent high frequency performance and rugged construction for reliable automatic assembly. The ITF Coupler is offered in a variety of frequency bands compatible with various types of high frequency wireless systems.
APECS means tighter tolerances & lower costs – Using the DuPont Fodel® process as a base technology, Anaren Ceramics’ precision thick film technology (better known as APECS) pushes thick film technology to a best-in-class position from which we can meet or exceed thin film tolerances -- at a far more affordable price point.

Mini-Systems manufactures high reliability, precision Thick Film chip resistors and jumpers for frequencies to 10 Ghz. Thin Film chip resistors, resistor arrays, chip attenuators, MOS style capacitors, and RC networks, DC through 20 Ghz. Electronic Packages Alumina/Glass sidewall flatpacks.
